2. House for Blog is called Web Hosting


Almost every living things need a house to live, and as a Blog their house called Web Hosting. Web hosting is actually a place where people store their websites. Think of it as a house where you store all your stuffs; but instead of storing your clothes and furnitures, you store computer files (HTML, documents, images, videos, etc) in a web host. More often than not, the term “web hosting” refers to the company that rent out their computer/servers to store your website (hence the word, host) and providing Internet connectivity so that other computers can access to the files on your website.


Do remember that Web Hosting and Domain is not the same. Domain could be www.shamieraosment.com and the hosting for this blog is still the blogspot because I still can't afford to rent a house for my blog.. haha..pity blog..

For a beginner blogger it is important to have a good time management for your blog because your blog is new a it might be fewer content in it. So to attract you reader of gain pageview, you should at least post one blog post per day.

People love to read something that is catchy and sometimes people follow your blog because of you. They like they way you talk and represent yourself, therefore a good tip to help you gain readers is to 'write like you talk' and I still trying to practicing it at my blog. Once my friend said that I'm too hardsell and that is one of the mistake beginner blogger should avoid. Clients also don't like the hardsell approach when advertising in your blog so do a soft sell approach or just be yourself and write like you talk.

Fact no 3 is interesting. ALthough I started out as a pure passion to love writing and intention to have my own website. But now, it is much more motivating that we are actually on the right track as online advertising is the now and future thing.

Thanks for these reminders. And yeah I agree with "write like you talk". That's what I did because you are delivering the message to your readers, and connecting with them personally. So sometimes, having a misspelled words occurs, and I think its okay. (Which makes sense coz, we don't speak fluently when we talk to our friends, right?)
